15 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!! I am feeling really good about the launch of my new novel. I can be an "anxious sort". That's putting it mildly, but I figure since being a published writer has been my dream since I was seven years old, it would be kinda dumb to expend energy feeling nervous about book signings and such when what I really want to do is enjoy, enjoy, enjoy this wonderful experience.
Thanks to everyone who's sent emails of support. And remember, you can still pre-order your book from Chop Suey Books at 422-8066. They're offering 20% off all pre orders. Go for it!
THE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF BEES
I have an old postcard I've kept. I keep lots of old postcards. In this particular one, there's a woman in front of a white steepled church, bees swarming her head. Last year, for research purposes, my friend Allyson performed energy healing on me, and while I was lying there, my eyes closed, her hands feeling for energy passing through my chakras, I heard a sound like a week whacker, and thought, "I wish that would stop. It's driving me batty." Well, lo and behold, it turns out that a bee was swarming around my head. Allyson didn't want to stop the session, and eventually, the bee flew off and disappeared. Just today, I was sitting revising my novel, and touching my hair, I heard a buzzing sound. I touched my hair again. More loud buzzing. Well, wouldn't you know it: another bee!
From what I've read, bees are associated with celebration and with Aphrodite. "Honey bees are a shamanic sign of passion, progress, and sexuality. They are also tied to joy and creativity...." From Lipstick Mystic, http://lipstickmystick.com
If you feel like it, share your thoughts about bees buzzing around. xxoo
